Meaning of AffiAka(アフィ垢)

This article was written over a year ago.

AffiAka(アフィ垢) is an abstraction for “affiliate account”.
Some people have an account on social media only for making money through affiliate marketing.
We call it AffiAka(アフィ垢).

Affi(アフィ) is an abstraction for affiliate and “aka(アカ)” is an abbreviation for “Account(アカウント)”.
Aka(垢) means dirt but the pronunciation of it is same with “aka(アカ)” of “Account(アカウント)”.
That’s why, we use Aka(垢) as a slang, when we want to talk about “Account(アカウント)”.

In my opinion, many AffiAka(アフィ垢) don’t say useful something, they just think about getting money. They are annoying.
